  1. fleecebay still keeps losing sellers pics, can not get correct information in the catalo, has a hard time loading pages…

    yea, this is really going to work..morons

  2. Will it go on a new version of the app, “ebay beta–the app for restless experimentation”?

  3. Do these people work in the Department of Redundancy Department?

    We put make and model in the headline AND the item details section.
    Does these people have a picture of Wenig and a goat?

  4. This is not for the buyers’ benefit. It’s a thinly disguised tool for rooting out branded products not being sold by authorized sellers (VERO). Very efficient way for eBay to search by a protected brand and see who is selling it without permission, even if their titles do not give it away. I’m not usually a conspiracy theorist, but how is a buyer supposed to search by the image?? They would have to find the image, copy it, paste it into eBay’s new tool and hit Search. Wouldn’t it be simpler to for the buyer to type in “Galaxy s8”?

    The only way the new tool would be faster and easier is if it could read the buyer’s mind, “see” the image through a brain scan, and then provide a matching search result. Not going to happen. That’s why the “eBay police theory” holds more weight.

  5. I’ve read that article three times and I still don’t know what they’re attempting to accomplish. It doesn’t even appear to be a way to search for items. It seems more like busy work for their programmers while serious issues on the site go unaddressed.
